2005 Dodge Durango SLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Im A Newer 2005 Durango Owner, So My Experience With The SUV Is Limited, But I Am So Dissapointed With The Fuel Mileage, I Was Wondering How Many Other People Were Experiencing This Same Issue. I`ve Owned Many Vehicles, Mid. And Full Size, But None That Got 11 Mpg. !!.I Drive About 60% Hwy. And 40% City, And I`m Averaging 11 Mpg. I Drive Very Easy, And Baby My Vehicles. For The Most Part I Really Like The Durango So Far, But I`ve Seen Huge Ford Excursions And Hummer H2`s Get 14.5 Mpg. Avgerage. Dodge And My Dealership Gave Me The Lame Excuse That Mpg. Depends On How The Person Drives The Vehicle. If I Drive Any Easier,Mopeds Will Pass Me! I Hope By Some Miracle My Mpg.Increases At Some Point

Best Features

I Like The Styling, And How Good You Can See Out The Front Windshield. You Sit High And The Windshield Is Low. I Like The 3rd Seat Option In A Mid Size SUV. New Larger Style Almost Pushing Full Size SUV.,I Like The 17 Inch Wheels And 4 Wheel Disc Brakes. Best Of All,The Suspension Is Similar To Jeep

Worst Features

This Purchase Was Down To Either A Hummer H3, Or This Durango. I Thought The Dodge Mpg. Was Better. The Dodge Dealership Was Willing To Deal. Some Of This SUV Is Average, Some Is Very Nice. But The Mpg. Is Unacceptable. Bottom Line, If You Don`t Mind 100.00 Weekly Fill Ups This Is A Pretty Nice SUV.
